KEY VERSERevelation 5:12 (another description of worship)
In a loud voice they were saying: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”

I long for the day when people of every nation worship together. Jesus is the healer of division and the gateway to unity. My saving power, my healing power, my forgiveness, and my peace are for people of every race and culture, every age and stage, every language and style, the powerful and the weak, and the rich and the poor. The time is coming soon when the events of this world will come to an end, and there will be nothing left but my kingdom. Come together now. Bring people together now. The lamb of God calls all people to praise him in peace together.

You can trust me with your life and the end of human history as you know it. This world cannot go on forever. Chaos and destruction are everywhere. But I am the creator of this world, and I love you. You don’t have to panic or live in fear. I am holy, and I am Almighty. Trust me and follow me. I will not leave you.

Take a moment to focus on verses 9-10. List the reasons Jesus is worthy of all praise and the only one with authority over the events of human history. Praise him for these things throughout your day today.
